Penguins Goaltending

Tuesday night was an exciting evening with 12 games across the National Hockey League. The busy schedule gave us plenty of goalie news, including a big debut on Broadway, some heroics in the desert and a victorious anniversary. In addition, we have a very deserving All-Star replacement. Shesterkin Topples Avalanche in NHL Debut As the old saying goes about New York City, “if you can make it here, you can make it anywhere.” If this holds true, then Igor Shesterkin will have a very successful NHL career. New York Rangers fans have been waiting a long time to see Shesterkin take the ice at Madison Square Garden. After being drafted in the fourth round of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, he spent the last five seasons playing in his native Russian. He finally came to North American for the 2019-20 season and has been spectacular in the American Hockey League. In 23 games with the Hartford Wolf Pack, Shesterkin posted a 1.93 goals-against average (GAA) and a .932 save...

PITTSBURGH — Mike Hoffman had a goal and an assist, rookie Chris Driedger stopped 31 shots and the Florida Panthers ended an eight-game losing streak on Pittsburgh ice with a 4-1 victory over the Penguins on Sunday night. Brett Connolly scored his 16th of the season for the Panthers, Frank Vatrano had his ninth and Evgenii Dadonov added an empty-netter for his 18th. Florida bounced back from a loss to Buffalo on Saturday by winning in Pittsburgh for the first time since Jan. 20, 2014. Jared McCann scored his 11th for Pittsburgh. Tristan Jarry finished with 31 saves, but the Penguins looked out of gas at times while playing for the third time in four nights. Pittsburgh reached the season's halfway point with the NHL's fourth-best record following an overtime victory in Montreal on Saturday night, heady territory for a club that's been riddled with injuries since opening night and spent the last two months playing without captain Sidney Crosby. Their formula during the first...

Max Domi extended his point streak to nine games with an assist while Carey Price stopped 34-of-37 shots in defeat.

San Jose Sharks

PITTSBURGH — Brent Burns' power-play goal just more than two minutes into overtime gave the San Jose Sharks a 3-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday night. Burns picked up his seventh goal of the season when his slap shot from high in the slot beat Tristan Jarry 2:02 into the extra period to give the Sharks only their third win in 14 games. Joe Thornton got the primary assist to move past Adam Oates for seventh place with 1,080 career helpers. Tomas Hertl scored his 15th goal for the Sharks and Logan Couture added his 13th as San Jose improved to 3-5-1 under interim coach Bob Boughner. Aaron Dell stopped 36 shots to outduel Jarry, who entered the game leading the NHL in goals-against average and save percentage. Patric Hornqvist scored twice for Pittsburgh, which lost for just the second time in nine games. Jarry finished with 28 saves but the Penguins couldn't kill off an overtime penalty by defenceman Kris Letang, who was sent off for tripping 46 seconds...
